Working with industry to attract new and emerging talent is key to the success of hospitality. Many see hospitality as a stop-gap career, are not encouraged by parents and peers to enter it and do not see it as a long-term option. Caterer.com are partners with Springboard to ensure that industry can join and support the charity to do just that. This week sees the launch of the Springboard Awards for Excellence 2012 and are well respected in their 10th year. They are designed to celebrate and reward inspired individuals, organisations and initiatives – those that work hard to elevate the profile of the industry as an employer, attract and retain talent, and demonstrate best employer practices.
The awards are divided into three categories: Promoting careers; Attracting & Developing People, and Best Employment Practice across hospitality, leisure and tourism. Entering the awards is motivational for employees and teams and beneficial for the profile of employers and winning an award has a significant and positive impact on both the business and your employees.
There are 17 awards in total and something for everyone in every sector, all you have to do is provide a 750 word statement outlining your initiative using the given criteria and submit to us before the 7th September deadline.
Do something to support the future pipeline into our industry and showcase your talents at the same time. Full details of the awards can be found here and small to large companies are encouraged to enter. The Award winners will be announced at a spectacular celebration evening on 18th October 2012 at Novotel, London West and tickets can be purchased here.
